Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women. The good news is that survival rates are increasing. But hot flashes are a real problem. So much so that 53 percent of women with breast cancer who receive hormone therapies have really bad hot flashes, which is the primary reason they consider stopping treatment. Hormone replacement therapy works great but it’s almost never allowed due to risk. So I want to share some of the alternative treatments to HRT for you to discuss with your doctors. There are also many women without breast cancer who either can’t or don’t want to take HRT for the low estrogen symptom of hot flashes. This will help you as well.
